The Newcastle manager even threatened to come out from hiding under the bed and go for a drink in the Bigg Market following Saturday's 1-0 win over Liverpool.

Pardew and Mourinho head-to-head

I take it he was joking, but there is no doubting his popularity is gaining momentum.

OK, I'm not saying he his suddenly popular ... but the hatred has toned down somewhat.

October saw Newcastle pick up their first Premier League win of the season against Leicester City; a credible draw at Swansea City; a win at Tottenham, and an amazing triumph over Championship holders Manchester City in the League Cup.

But don't rule out Brucy or Big Sam

Also nominated are Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho, Hull City’s Steve Bruce and West Ham United’s Sam Allardyce.
